Drop Josh Johnson and pick up Hammel or Capuano?

Postby USBlues19 » Tue May 08, 2012 2:24 pm

It's an 8 team league with short benches, so there's always good talent on the waiver wire. I'm thinking of dropping Josh Johnson (SP Mia) who has been terrible so far. I know he's supposed to be good, but I'm tired of him just dumping the bed every 5 days.

On the waiver wire are:
SP Jason Hammel
SP C. Capuano

Those are my top 2 choices. But there's also Smyly, Joe Blanton, Smardzija, Marcum, Lester, Tommy Hanson

There are also some tempting position players: J. Montero, Chipper Jones, Chris Johnson, Maybin

8 team rotissierie league, 5x5. (R, HR, RBI, BA, SB). (K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP).

Still in 2nd place. My offense is killing it. My pitching is not. (8+7+7+8+8 points for offense). (6+2+7+1+5 for pitching).

Here's who I have:
C Carlos Santana, Cle C, 1B
1B Adrian Gonzalez, Bos 1B
2B Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
3B David Wright, NYM 3B
SS Asdrubal Cabrera, Cle SS
2B/SS Dee Gordon, LAD SS
1B/3B Adrian Beltre, Tex 3B
OF Matt Kemp, LAD OF  DTD
OF Adam Jones, Bal OF
OF Jason Heyward, Atl OF
OF Yoenis Cespedes, Oak OF
OF Corey Hart, Mil OF
UTIL Michael Young, Tex 1B, 3B, DH
Bench Josh Willingham, Min OF, DH  DTD
DL Lance Berkman*, StL 1B, OF  DL15

P CC Sabathia, NYY SP
P Matt Cain, SF SP
P Jordan Zimmermann, Wsh SP
P Jose Valverde, Det RP
P J.J. Putz, Ari RP
P Brandon League, Sea RP
P Gio Gonzalez, Wsh SP
P Lance Lynn, StL RP, SP
P Dan Haren, LAA SP PP
Bench Josh Johnson, Mia SP
Bench Yovani Gallardo, Mil SP PP

OK, I expect a chorus of "NO!!!" based on this thread:

viewtopic.php?t=446218

I like how they show you related threads, but I only see it after I post a thread. Maybe use the "search" function. Sorry, noobie thinking out loud. Typing out loud? Thinking silently but typing concurrently?

I would keep JJ as well. Yes he has been stinking right now, but once he turns it around will you be able to get him back? Is there a max innings pitched limit? if so what is it and how many innings are you tracking right now.

I know it's an 8-tm lg, but I'm surprised that Jon Lester is available in your league. I'd take him over Josh Johnson or Yovani Gallardo. Very good pitcher on a strong offense that should help in the W column.
